House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 2PM

I apologize if these rules seem over the top and pretty obvious, but each has been added from my Airbnb experience to date:
• Smoking outside only – please keep ashtrays from over-flowing
• Use exhaust fan when showering to ensure adequate ventilation
• Use the air conditioners sparingly and turn off when going out. Please make sure the external doors and windows are closed when heating or cooling is turned on. I understand some guests are from very hot or very cold climates and require heavier heating or cooling usage, and this can be facilitated by agreeing to pay a $2 per day levy charged against the security deposit.
• If requested, linen changed weekly for longer term guests.
• Please respect my neighbours and the guests in adjoining apartment.
• Absolutely no parties or overly loud activities between 10pm and 7am.
• Please be careful of floors, walls etc with your suitcases and do not move the furniture around scratching the timber floors.
• No overnight non-airbnb guests – should more guests stay than were booked, the listed additional person charges will be charged against the security deposit. If more guests than the maximum number for the apartment are found to be staying then you will be asked to terminate the stay immediately.
• Hot Water. It is a large tank that supplies the whole building but it is on ‘off peak’ - which means it only heats over night. When it runs out you must wait until the next day. We have NEVER run out of hot water yet - but make sure you use Cold Water only in washing machine and take a reasonable time in the shower – particularly if you have more than 3 guests in your party.
• Please leave the house as you found it

We were in Australia to visit our son and family who lived just a few km's away. Great location with good access to trains and shopping. Wendy was always ready to help if there were any concerns or needs (hardly any!). Often difficult to find accommodations for 3 adults but this was ideal.

Wendy is a marvellous, approachable host. A couple of enquiries we made were answered very quickly. The accomodation was great for my wife, myself and a 9 year old and 12 year old. Kitchen was great with all the equipment needed and bathroom great too. Very comfortable and close to the railway, shops and major roads.

The Tardis easily fitted our group of five young adults. Wendy answered our messages really quickly. Public transport and shops are close by. All towels and utensils are supplied as well as basic necessities (milk and bread, etc.) which is really helpful when traveling. And really cheap for a group traveling

Spacious, comfortable and clean home just a few minutes walk from Kogarah railway station. Air conditioning and ceiling fans made the house cool on hot, humid days. All in all highly recommended.

Wendy User ProfileWendy is a superhost.

Hi, after travelling myself around UK, USA, South America and Europe, I found the best trips were the home stay ones. Something I can feel at home in at the end of a busy day.
Now that I have retired from my hectic IT career, I am looking forward to sharing my home with fellow travellers and giving them - a home away from home.
Please feel free to get in contact with me if you have any questions.
I am looking forward to having you stay.
